Galiana Street, Avilés
Asturias
It was built in the XVIIth century, as the town started expanding out of the walls. As many other streets in Avilés, houses were provided with porticos, so they formed a corridor for pedestrians to shelter themselves from rain or sunshine. These porticos were also the location chosen by craftsmen to do their work in.
The Galiana Street houses had all a little backyard where people used to grow their vegetables or have hens and cows to provide for their sustenence.
